We will celebrate 16 years of wedded bliss this summer. I am lucky to have a husband who is romantic in the sense that he plans little getaways for us and brings me a flower just because but to me romance is so much more than that. It's the little things. I try to show my romantic side as well but the little things seem to always mean more!
Plugging in my cell phone because he knows it's about to go dead.
Driving so he can play with whatever new gadget he got.
Washing a sink full of dirty dishes because he knows how much I loath doing them.
Dipping strawberries in chocolate because he saw some and thought they looked good.
Helping kids with homework because I loathe that even more than the dishes.
Bringing me a hot chocolate...just because.
Letting him spend all night playing his guitar in the back room, even though I would like to spend some time with him!
See it's about anticipating the needs or wants of the other person and meeting them. That is romance to me!
**With a very sick husband this week I didn't have an opportunity to take the photo I planned so I took a page out of Michelle's book and grabbed one from the archives.
